    I dunno man. Not sure I really buy this. I mean I saw a BD disc running at 720p on the L.G 42PC1DG, and a Samsung 40inch M81 running the same disc, off the same player at 1080p. Both running HDMi, and the difference was a clear as day and night.

    I can tell you right now that a 72" screen would be too big for my viewing area. But a 42" PDP is perfect and the PQ is outstanding.

    I also like to watch movies during the day as well as during the night.

    I would be surprised if you didn't see a difference between a plasma running a 720p source at 1024x768 and an LCD at 1920x1080 running a 1080p source.

    As Fishface pointed out, to see properly 1080 on a 50 inch screen you need to be sitting 2 metres or less from the screen.

    If you have 20/20 vision (ie: you can read the bottom line of the eye chart ) then your eyes can resolve a minimum of 1/60 of a degree.

    The pixels in a 50 inch 720p screen are smaller than that at 2 metres viewing distance.

    As mentioned the LG vs Samsung comparison is hardly valid, you need to get Panasonic or Pioneer 720 and 1080 plasmas side by side.

    People who have done that comparison agree with the 2 metre maximum viewing distance for resolving any difference.

    When I had my eyes tested I was told I what someone with 20/20 vision could see at 6 metres I can see at 10 metres :( Perhaps I should wait for 1080p...

    20/20 vision is not the best vision possible; it just says that you can read 3/8th inch high letters at a distance of 20 feet. People with unusually good eyesight, usually kids, may have 20/15 or 20/10 vision.
